William Paterson University and St. Joseph's Healthcare System Present Children's Health Issues Workshops

St. Joseph's Healthcare System and William Paterson University's Center For Continuing and Professional Education will host a series of five spring workshops that focus on a range of children's health issues. Held at the University's Valley Road campus, The Children's Health Series, It's All About The Kids, will include discussions of children and internet safety, diabetes, attention deficit disorder and school safety. A panel of pediatricians from St. Joseph's Children's Hospital will participate in an open discussion with seminar attendees on children's health and enabling children from other countries and cultures to adapt to America. The workshops are open to teachers, school nurses, guidance counselors and other school staff.


"Keeping Our Children Safe," and protecting the lives and well-being of students, teachers and all members of the school community are critical, ever-present challenges. James Pruden, M.D., Chairman of Emergency Preparedness and Tina Miles, LCSW, Manager of Psychiatric Emergency Services at St. Joseph's, will offer practical, effective strategies to facilitate classroom and school safety in all circumstances. They will also discuss approaches to creating a culture of safety and caring, responding to the concerns of children and parents and collaborating with colleagues.


Workshop is located at 1600 Valley Road in Wayne. Cost per workshop is $20 and pre-registration is required.
